Inexpensive hearing protectors!!!

I was at a local Habror Freight store the other day and they had plain, red and black earmuff type hearing protectors for $1.99 a pair! These aren't Peltors or anything like that but they do a good job of saving your hearing and they are cheap enough that you could give them away at the range and not get hurt to badly. I gave away 3 pair just yesterday to some fellows that didn't have any hearing protection and they promised that they would go buy a few pair and give they to some body else. I don't know if they will or not but it is a good gesture.
P.S. I don't work for Harbor freight or have anything to do with their business, just a customer.
The problem with America is stupidity. I'm not saying there should be capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?

Wondering what db they are rated for, any idea?

My ears are worth the cost of a decent pair of protecctors, not saying these arn't decent, but I am hesitant to buy until
I know.

I think he's advising grabbing a pair as throw-aways for your range bag, which isn't a bad idea.

"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects." -Robert Heinlein
